About the Album

Slam Dunk is the track giving the title to last CD of saxophonist and composer Biagio Coppa. A new and intriguing project in trio in which Biagio Coppa continues to move forward with the development of his own original language, that is completely free from preordained and guessable ways of doing. The sophisticated compositional and arrangement techniques are the real support in the construction of sound scenarios that serves to stimulate unpredictable and totally transversal improvisational paths: New York avant-garde and European contemporary music references are always at the forefront, but with attentive listening it is perceived that the basic idea is that nothing is forbidden, nothing is indispensable, everything is possible. The intimacy offered by an exquisitely acoustic Trio, Sax - Bass - Drums, also certainly favors the sense of expressive freedom, of extemporaneous and unique execution where the verb dare becomes the main key to reading this fascinating music proposal.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
